- Nikon AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED Camera Lens
Nikon AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED is the world's first macro lens equipped with Vibration Reduction (VR) technology that helps compensate for camera shake. With the help of f/2.8 aperture and 105mm focal length it helps ensure sharper pictures in low light and shutter speeds up to three stops faster. This technology advances the opportunity to extend hand-held telephoto photography into lower light level conditions. SWM (Silent Wave Motor) enables quiet autofocusing with M/A switch for quick and convenient shift between autofocus and manual operation. Nano Crystal Coat drastically lessens image flare and ghost while an Extra-Low Dispersion Glass Elementeliminate certain types of lens aberration. It is compatible with APS-C and Full Frame Sensor DSLR Cameras.
